Seventeen years after opening, Singita Boulders Lodge in South Africa's Sabi Sand Game Reserve was recently renovated. Here's a sneak peek at what guests can expect.

Guest areas have been opened up, lowered, and brought closer to the river. Throughout the lodge, visitors can see sculptural shapes, abstract art and curated collections of crystals, seed pods, bones and other found objects to get a sense of place.
Open to the elements or separated from the outdoors by glass walls, the lodge provides a continuous connection with the local wildlife. Communal spaces like the new sociable Copper Bar offer places to relax and unwind with other guests.

The 12 privately spaced suites, two of which are designed exclusively for families, have unique furnishings made from fossilised tree stumps, slabs of solid stone, artisanal wrought iron and leather. Even the textiles are unique: Guests step on a sheep-skin rug when they get out of bed and sleep on natural flax bed linen.
